During the offseason, Brandon Curry is working on bringing up his legs, so that he will look better at the 2021 Mr. Olympia. He recently shared his quad workout which is intense enough to get the job done.
After winning the 2019 Olympia, there were a lot of eyes on Curry heading into last year’s contest. In particular the talk was about the battle that was sure to take place between he and returning seven time champ Phil Heath.
In the end however, it was Big Ramy who was finally able to put it all together and bring a complete package to the stage. He surpassed both men, en route to being the sixteenth person to be crowned Mr. Olympia.
Obviously this was not the result that Brandon Curry was hoping for, as he has been plotting how he will take back his title in 2021. One of the ways that he looks to do that, is by improving the size of his legs, a perpetual weak point in his game.
In the efforts to do just that, the former champ has been doing a killer quad workout, which he shared to his YouTube channel. This intense workout will surely bring up the size of his quads, vastly improving the quality of his legs.
“Today is actual leg day, and basically more quads than anything,” Curry said.
“But I do like to warm up with hamstrings because the past couple of weeks, my knees have been feeling great and I think it’s because I’ve been warming up with hamstrings.”

All in all, this is a pretty solid and intense leg workout from Brandon Curry. He is doing things in a way that allows him to put focus on the specific parts of his quads that need work, and this workout seems to account for everything.
Time will tell if Brandon is going to be able to recapture the Mr. Olympia throne. However either way, it is a bit hard to deny that he is, at a bare minimum, focused and motivated to give it his all.
